1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cheerful Flower clutch! on: May 11, 2010 01:22:21 PM
It has been a while since I posted anything here, but I am going to try again. I love summery bright colors and I also love grey so I am loving this new bag I made. Roomy enough for what I need but it is not huge. Plus I can throw away less left over fabric since I use such small pieces for the leaves. Bonus!
Thanks for looking.

those are both really cute! I love the fabric combinations. Very unexpected but it totally works!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Wedding Quilt on: August 31, 2009 06:44:33 PM
This is a quilt I made for my best friend, whose wedding was in June in Chicago. It was a very untraditional wedding- reception in an antique warehouse- and I thought the colors she chose were so unique and pretty I was inspired. The bridesmaids wore cream colored Antrhopologie dresses and the flowers were white and grey and dark dark purple. Anyway, I liked how the quilt turned out and secretly wanted to keep it for myself. Also- it is not easy to find cool grey fabric!! I think I bought it all Smiley
The quilt is just Amy Butler's Brick Road design. I recommend it. This was only my second quilt and overall I liked it. Except I only quilted the short sides of each "brick." I made another one of this style and quilted over every line like the pattern says but it shifted the fabric too much and made a ton of wrinkles which really bugged me.

a close up. I added some random pieces of lacey trim and used some shimery fabric too.

showing the back fabric and the corner tassels.

Embroidered square in the bottom corner with names and wedding date (and rhinestones). Very girly  but that's why I like it.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / LOVE my modified amy butler bag! on: January 13, 2009 11:45:10 PM
i made this purse a few months ago and really love how it turned out. i havent been sewing for very long, and i feel like this purse looks a lot more complicated than it actually was....so people are impressed by it Smiley
it was the amy butler pattern- i believe its called the chelsea bag. i just sewed on leather handles instead of cutting them out of the bag. and i added inside pockets, including my first-ever zippered pocket. exciting!
the purse handles only fit over my arm if im wearing a tshirt though, so i guess this is in retirement until spring!

its pretty roomy. i like it because it holds a notebook and book and wallet with plenty of room left.
thanks for looking!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: why can't i figure this out?!!? on: August 22, 2008 01:10:18 PM
these are the exact directions from the pattern
Bubble Pattern*  K5B (Knit the 5 th st below): Sl the next st off LH needle and drop 4 rows down.  Place the four dropped  sts and the 5 th row st onto LH needle and k all 5 sts. at once (catch the 4 dropped stitches and knit into the  5 th [live] stitch). 
and this is a picture of the bag
thank you!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / why can't i figure this out?!!? on: August 21, 2008 11:58:10 PM
i recently purchased a pattern for a knit purse on etsy that uses something called the bubble stitch. the directions say to k5b (knit 5 below) in order to create the bubbles, but i have tried every way my mind can conceive of to do this and yet it doesnt turn out like a bubble, it is either a whole, or a clump, or some loose strands, or a scallop. i have searched google high and low and nothing is helping! i really love this bag and really want to make it!
anyway, i am hoping it is easy and i just havent quite grasped it yet, since i have only been knitting a few months. thanks sooo much for whatever help/advice you can give me!!
